Medically unnecessary cesarean section births : introduction to a symposium.
Between 1965 and 1986, the United States cesarean section rate increased from 4.5 to 24.1%. Increasingly, childbearing women and their advocates, along with many others, have recognized that a large proportion of cesareans confers a broad array of risks without providing any medical benefit.
A growing literature examines the diverse causes of medically unnecessary cesareans and the diverse effects of surgical birth on women, infants, and families.
Various programs and policies have been proposed or implemented to reduce cesarean rates.
In recent daecdes, many other nations have also experienced a sharply escalating cesarean section rate.
